Once Upon a Christmas part 1

Two cards for you today. 

First one very simple using some diecuts from the Once Upon a Christmas range. I love this range from Uniquely Creative. The colours are so soft.

Once Upon a Christmas 6 x 6 paper pad
Once Upon a Christmas Diecuts
Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Distress Tool
Stardust Stickles 

Paper is cut to 14.4 x 10 glued flat to the card base. Use a distress Tool to grunge up the paper and apply Walnut Stain to all elements. Gingerbread man is glued to the "Merry and Bright". Die cuts are raised up using foam tape and the "Postal Service" die cut is adding just under the "Merry & Bright"

Next card is slightly harder but still an easy card.. I promise.


Once Upon a Christmas paper Pad
Once Upon a Christmas diecuts
Moon Dust Stickles Gel
Speckled Egg Ink Pad
Paper Rose Poinsettia Stamp Set
With the card in landscape orientation (make sure you have the card round the right way LOL ) measure up the left hand side, make a mark at 3cm and 6cm. Repeat this on the right hand side from the bottom edge. You can discard the middle piece. Keep the bottom piece. 

You will need paper that measures 2.5 x 14.3cm and 4 x 14.3cm. I used the top and the bottom of the selected paper. Before applying the paper cut a piece of acetate that will go the full length of the card base. Glue this down and apply the paper or the top.

Add a note here. Stamp the inside of the card base with a sentiment. If you do this before adding the glitter gel it will make your life easier! Trust me I know! lol
You can position it on the outside of the card where you want it and then open the card up to stamp it on the inside. I may have had to cross a few fingers cos I didn't want to wait for it to dry

Apply the glitter gel on the edge of the acetate making it look like it is dripping down the card base over the window. The gel is a stretchy type of medium, I applied it with a palette knife.

Add glue to the top and the bottom of a diecut, making sure you don't put too much on that it will be able to be seen thru the acetate.
